Custom77 London's Burning CS3 P77
This Custom 77 is manufactured in Korea. It has a 3-piece mahogany neck covered with a rosewood fingerboard. It has 22 frets and a type 60's (quite thin) profile. It is glued to the body which is also mahogany. She also has a Tune-O-Matic and mechanical vintage Kluson kind. The nut is in turn made of synthetic bone.
There are two Alnico V "P77" (P90 type) and the typical configuration of the Les Paul: a volume control and tone control with microphone and a three-position switch. The original 10-46 is mounted.
His varnish is brilliant and hardware is chrome. A nice binding on the front of the body and along the sleeve surrounds the guitar. The inlays are acrylic trapezoid, plates and pickups cream colors and buttons are golden like Top Hat (I think they are beautiful). The advertised weight is 3.8kg, it weighs more (like a Les Paul standard) so you have a bit to get used to at first when we are not accustomed to this style of guitar.
However, plaque and caps-electronics are a little cheap (mine are a little stained behind, but hey you can not see them then ...).

UTILIZATION

The varnish of the handle can be annoying at first but you get used to it very quickly. However, the handle is really nice because of its very thin profile. The guitar is very well balanced and is easy to wear with a good strap. After for access to acute, one is on a Les Paul so not as easy as on a Stratocaster of course. The knobs fulfill their role well and are effective. As for the mechanical, they are correct even if they are not in an oil bath. For cons, the body and the glaze color is dark, then do not be too manic (fingerprints, micro-scratches, etc.).
The handle is really a strong point in any case, very comfortable.

SOUNDS

Well, here it is very personal, but I was quite surprised! Personally P90 pickups are my favorite and I must say it P77 are pretty good for the price.
The neck pickup is really nice, I use it instead for blues and jazz, a little less for the rock (for this, see pickup!). It's hot, well rounded and pleasing to the ear, I love this mic!
As for the pickup, I use it instead with distortion and less clean, but it's good too: with a little overdrive, it's great fun. Not too loud or too acute, it is more than adequate.
Then there is the combination of the two pickups, and I must say it is really well done. It's pretty versatile and I particularly like, both in clean than saturated.
A good point on this criterion in any case, even if we do not have the sound of a guitar from 1000 €.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for almost a year and I must say that I am happy at the moment! I love the handle and microphones, like the violin is really good for 400 €.
Well, some issues remain less well as finishing (binding a little dirty in the body / neck junction, stained, etc. plates), but I did not expect not to a perfect thing for that price.
In conclusion, a very good quality / price for a guitar that sounds comfortable, despite some finish defects report.

Custom77 London's Burning CS3 P77
Les Paul type guitar made in Korea
Channel 3 piece mahogany, rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, standard profile 60's (late)
Mahogany body
Tune O Matic mechanical type vintage KLUSON
2 P90 type pickups with 2 volume knobs and 2 tone, 3-position selector
level violin is very good, electronics, fine too (quality of knobs including and especially that of microphones)

UTILIZATION

I used to play on an Ibanez and Cort Stratocaster type, in other words another world. I've made very quickly, despite the presence of varnish. Handle very nice.

Access to acute ... like on a Les Paul. Same for the handling, ergonomics ... and weight! ... a little less heavy, however, that my friend Gibby GT but has a thicker body makes sense. A good belt and forget.

The knobs do their office on their entire race so you get the sound quickly and easily searched.

8 for access to acute, the mechanisms that take less agreement as oil baths (normal) and the position of the selector (which I tend to change unintentionally with my movements) but hey, c 'it is very personal and I myself made over time. Others will not have this problem.

SOUNDS

This is the major strong point of this guitar. It's just bluffing to get a sound like the scratching at that price. Both the bridge pickup as the neck pickup is really quality worthy of much more expensive guitars.
We play a good rock nervous about that sounds very crunchy saturated (it was not always the case) and the P90 are doing wonderfully.
I use very few effects in addition to my preamp tube (a Koch Road Pedaltone on my transistor 1978): chouillat of a spring reverb of my amp, occasionally a little time and very rarely a little phaser. For cons, I have just acquired a Jacques Katapult (brand new) that she brings a real plus (treeble booster)
Clear sounds clear and powerful sound, the crunch really top. I do not use very large amount of distortion, then, these microphones do quite well also.
My favorite sounds: in crunch on the bridge or bridge + neck with the handle to 7 (more, especially with the boost treeble)

OVERALL OPINION

I for 1 year. I love everything in this skyscraper. The sound of all, the look and comfort of play
What I like least ... I have never farted as string with this scratch. I was luckily given a tip from and the problem seems solved, I can do a set without breaking. And therefore the view of the tuning but hey, it's all not too serious. I was wrong with my Floyd used on the Ibanez.
I tried a few scrapes with a Lag Roxanne (I have purchased had there been the RF1000) but the models below (more to do with the price of the C77 does not sound as well.
The value for money is really good in goldtop € 395 (the walnut is no longer), it's really cheap. Some say it scratches vautune to € 1000. I might go so far but not in any case as they bury Epiphone guitars, really is no comparison. It will be difficult to find a guitar which sounds as good as the € 600 (I did not say impossible, eh!)
I found the mark on the net but am going to Lyon in the boss to try them, I was afraid of being disappointed. I tried almost all of their range at the time so yes, I was sure of my choice and yes, I do it again with eyes closed.
There are certainly better on the market but at that price ... I do not know if all models of the market, I can tell you that you go for a good time to find as well.

Everything has been said below.

UTILIZATION

The handle is comfortable without being exceptional, the key is correct but "hangs" a bit (it's less well on this type that Hagstrom LP for example).
The tuners hold well enough Kluson type agreement.
The high frequency is an LP so ...
Ergonomics: it's classic LP, with an average weight.
Unsurprisingly, therefore it is at this price!

SOUNDS

The P77 pickups are good without reaching the high end mics (less personality!)
The settings are effective (2 vol + 2 tone), the knobs are progressive.
So perfect for rock, blues-rock ...
For this price, the sound is really good, not far from the "real" Gibson.

OVERALL OPINION

I utlise onstage without surprise and concern. All goes well for 6 months from the jack plate that unscrews to change to something more solid, but it cost nothing and it is a detail.
Please note that the finish of the mine was decommissioned lamentable failure: evidence of glue really visible on all key benchmarks, obviously it has not been properly checked for quality control. Custommer 77 has made a gesture of goodwill or agreed to exchange it when I informed him of the problem (photos required).
So a good guitar in absolute terms, an excellent value for money, possible problems of quality control but everything works out amicably with the team Custommer 77.
Do not hesitate if you are looking for a Les Paul with P90 Vintage sounding, played easily and that is beautiful!
